Anthony's Favorite Food: Pink Frosted Sprinkled Doughnut (Vegan, unlike Ian's).


It starts out as events from the last episode are played.

Then, Ian points out that they cannot both have the same food, but Anthony points out that his is "vegan", and the difference between the two donuts is that screaming animals can be heard from Ian's donut. Ian then says "YOU'RE GOING DOWN, DOOKIE BROWN!" He eats the donut and the title screen appears.


  1. "The child you just found out you had with your highschool girlfriend that you now have visitation rights with"
  2. Clone
  3. Glue
  4. Dabbing Harambe
  5. Christmas Tree Topper


The child you just found out you had with your high school girlfriend that you now have visitation rights with:  Ian's doughnut started crying. Ian : ✓

Anthony spat out his doughnut worrying about his baby boy while watching TV. Anthony : ✓

Clone: Ian talks to his doughnut and tells him to become his clone. Ian puts his doughnut on the ground and Ian's identical clone spawns from it. Ian : ✓

When Anthony tells his doughnut to double as his clone and he puts his doughnut on the couch. It respawns as a weakly Anthony with messy hair holding a gigantic cylindrical pink doughnut with pink frosting smeared on his face. He says "kill me" in a low pitch weakly voice. Anthony screams in horror. Anthony : X

Glue: Ian breaks Anthony's electric guitar so he can use his doughnut to glue it back. Anthony complains but when Ian tries to glue it back, it doesn't work. Ian: X

Anthony's parents (portrayed by Ian and Anthony themselves) were fighting about sex with each other so Anthony threw his doughnut to glue. Instead it bounces off Anthony's dad and he just gets frustrated and tells him to stop. Anthony is still happy since he'll get double Christmas presents next year. Anthony : X    

Dabbing Harambe: When Ian tries to be a dabbing Harambe two policemen (Shayne and Keith) come and tells Ian he posted outdated memes multiple times. Ian claims it worked when it didn't. Ian : X

Anthony was trying to tell his doughnut to be a dabbing Harambe but the buzzer sound and the X kept popping up before he got to finish his sentences. Anthony : X X X X X

Christmas Tree Topper: Ian tried placing his doughnut on the top of his Christmas tree but couldn't reach it. So he knocked it over and placed his doughnut. Ian : ✓

Anthony sits on his chair. Ian asked Anthony why he isn't doing the match. Anthony suggested to Ian that they should end Food Battle because it's time for them to grow up. Therefore, he decided to forfeit the whole competition and not start it again. Anthony : No Result (Since Food Battle ended)
